MANILA, Philippines - Among the criteria for an exceptional urban residence are location and its homely environment. An ideal abode in an inner city is also a place where style complements substance. We know a place that will soon rise in Makati which simply has it all. The Salcedo Square, another masterpiece by Vista Residences, will be home to the country’s young urban professionals and those who seek quality life. To give everyone a preview of Salcedo Square’s model units, a grand launch of its new showroom was celebrated on Wednesday at Mosaic Tower on Gamboa St. in Legazpi Village, Makati.

Salcedo Square is in a community that offers a secure sanctuary amid the city’s frenzied pace. It is conveniently plopped in a progressive residential neighborhood within the Makati central business district. Located on L.P. Leviste St. in Salcedo Village, it is a 30-storey tower that consists of 400 units with choices of a studio or a one-bedroom unit. It is close to the major corporate offices, financial institutions and prestigious schools, as well as to the metro’s cultural, gastronomical and shopping hubs. An ideal community to live in, there are also recreational parks and organic markets within the area, providing a well-balanced city lifestyle for individuals seeking quality living.

“Salcedo Square addresses the demands for mid-range condos. Here, we offer a unique product in the sense that our project is inside this particular area of the Makati CBD as compared to other developers which are rare in this area. We have a market for people who work and study in Makati as Salcedo Square is close to hospitals, schools, and corporate offices,” says Vista Residences marketing head Trixie Dial.

Dial adds, “If you’re looking for a more quiet residential area that’s close to everything, then Salcedo Square is perfect for you.”Offering a variety of amenities, residents here can enjoy leisure and fitness activities. Salcedo Square will have a swimming pool, fitness gym, and game room, as well as WiFi- ready facilities. There’s also a good place for them to socialize as the social hall, and the sunken deck/al fresco areas are just within the building.

Efficient security measures will also be observed in Salcedo Square. The building will have a CCTV system installed, well-appointed lobby and concierge services. There will also be powerful generator sets on standby, full-time building administration and property management, two residential elevators and one service elevator, a water reservoir and fire reserves.

Design and space

More than its convenient location, it provides a perfect space for both young independent individuals and nesting families. It addresses the need for space of urban professionals who always prefer the finer things in life, but at the same time, go for the more practical options in life. Salcedo Square’s masterplan revolves around flexibility and openness. From the spacious living room to the bedroom, Salcedo Square offers efficient space design for

a more comfortable and a relaxing place to live.

The building itself is a combination of the best of urban seclusion and award-winning aesthetics by Casas Architects.

“The overall interior design of the Salcedo Square model unit is very well-studied and we ensure our clients that we always show them what’s being delivered in terms of the space planning and material specifications,” says Doris Dy, Vista Residences Interior Design Department head. “Since Salcedo Square is in the Makati CBD, the interior design option that I used gives a modern feel that will appeal to varied nationalities because aside from our young urban professionals, we are expecting foreign clients as well. A combination of stainless steel, luxurious fabric and brown mirrors exudes the right kind of modernity we want to achieve.”

Salcedo Square’s units are carefully planned and enable more space for home essentials and other stuff. Dy explains, “With this specific unit, which is a one-bedroom unit, we were able to show a commendable layout. We have a dining table good for three to four, a very comfy L-shaped sofa, an entertainment unit across the sofa, add to that a built-in mini bar that can be hidden when not in use. The living and dining space is conducive for entertaining guests. What’s good about this unit is that we have a bedroom that can house a queen- sized bed and a generous closet space. Add to it, the blank space across the bed where we can put a wall-hung TV or make use of it as an open storage station for the people who are always on the go.” She adds, “We show what’s being delivered, at the same time, we maximize design possibilities.” And because Salcedo Square is under Vista Residences, residents are ensured of high-quality materials, from the overall structure of the building to the home fixtures. As similar to all Vista Residences projects, Salcedo Square also reflects the same vision of giving better homes. “We make sure that we are in tune with our company’s vision to give our clients a home worth living,” says Dy.

Wise investment

Among the many condominium projects rising today, banking on a wise property investment is what many people consider in buying a unit. Being well-positioned in a prime location, Salcedo Square’s property value has now risen to at least 20 to 30 percent. This makes owners here get a full benefit of their investment.

“This is one of the factors that make our investors happy because the price of their units has already appreciated,” says Dial.

Scheduled for completion in December 2014, Salcedo Square only has a few prime units available today, with construction already in full swing. The project’s newest showroom in Mosaic Tower in Makati will give prospected buyers a taste of this new most-coveted landmark capital.
